BRIGHT eyed and bushy tailed, this squirrel was primed and ready for its photo shoot.

Our camera club member Cheryl Holland captured this cracking shot in Colchester’s Castle Park.

Balancing on two fence posts this squirrel looked the camera square in the face.

Clacton and Frinton Gazette:

The squirrel, one of several living in the award-winning park, looks as though he has wintered well with his round stomach on full show as he balances precariously on fence posts.

This is one of many great images which has been sent into our camera club.

Anyone is welcome to join the club and share their images which might also be on our website and in the paper.
